currently...

I love these type of posts starting with a verb and I finish with what I am currently doing, here it goes:

reading: Faithful Women and their Extraordinary God by Noelle Piper. I am reading it for the accountability and encouragement group I am a apart of at my church. This is the book we are reading this summer and it is awesome, awesome.

eating: popsicles. I have a new found passion for paletas (popsicles)

watching: the Real Housewives of OC (I am bored by NY), Ladies of London and the Bachelorette, although she is boring me too.

thinking: something that is ridiculous to me is that Sean is in a wedding next month and the bachelor party this is weekend in Vegas, Thursday to Sunday and was gonna cost him $950, and that didn't even cover gas or a plane ticket to get there. I think that is a bit over the top and totally ridiculous. p.s. He isn't going

loving: being a mom to Caleb

wishing: for a nice pair of white jeans and a few striped blouses I saw at Old Navy the other day

learning: that sleep is overrated ;-) no honestly how astonished I am at how much babies grow. I love seeing how Caleb just develops and grows each week. Things that he was doing one week he doesn't do the next week like sucking on his thumb and forefinger of his right hand, he has moved on and now sucks in his bottom lip continually. 

anticipating: my parents out visiting in a few weeks for 6 days while Sean is away at a coaching clinic, hello great eats at delicious restaurants!

wearing: my mom outfit - skinny jeans, a t-shirt, and some comfy sandals and oh simple jewelry, and to put a little extra pep in my step I always make sure to put on some mascara and my Nars orgasm blush, a rosy cheek will help hide the dark circles under my eyes

planning: a day at the beach with Sean and Caleb and some friends this Saturday

remembering: the wedding of my friends Shawna and Ray on Friday and how much I loved the decorations especially this creative centerpiece.

Wow, that is definitely a crazy cost for a bachelor party! I need to get some popsicles, too, now that the weather is heating up.

Simply LKJ said...

Love reading your thoughts. And yes, oh my word...that is a mortgage payment and all for a Bachelor party?!!

brooke lyn said...

Those centerpieces are amazing. Your beach day and yummy meals with your parents are definitely good things to look forward to! Totally need to catch up on the last episode of LOL.

Those flowers are so cute! I've been wanting some pants from Old Navy as well! Some printed pants :)
Happy Wednesday!

I love love love those center pieces!!! I am currently on a money saving pledge because we just bought a new car so no more shopping sprees and I have been dying to go to Old Navy but I know it would not turn out great! lol

Amanda {Kids and Cabernet} said...

I'm in love with those centerpieces! And your mom outfit is pretty much mine too ;)

I was in a wedding in April for my best friend. The dresses were $250 (plus alterations), the Bachelorette party was $250 (without the cost of transportation or food), and she had six bridal showers (we were sent invites to all of them). Plus the cost of transportation and board AT the wedding (thankfully she offered to let us stay at one of her family's houses). I love her to death, but seriously - being in a wedding can be SO expensive these days!

I have not watched more than two episodes of the Bachelorette - she is just not that interesting! I think I just can't get over how much I loved Emily Maynard :)

Pamela {Sequins and Sea Breezes} said...

I watch RHOC and Ladies of London too! Wow. That bachelor party is crazy expensive... I think that's a bit ridiculous too! Loving those hydrangeas by the way!

Those flowers are so beautiful! I think Ladies Of London is my new fave show - even over the Real Housewives!

The Modern Tulip said...

What pretty centerpieces! Shoot, I wear the "mom" outfit almost daily and I'm not a momma! Haha whoopsie!

Jillian Manesh said...

LOVE that centerpiece! i finally gave up Real Housewives...of all the cities. their fighting just made me sad. ah well it's been replaced with cooking shows! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

Nat said...

Love those centerpieces! Your mom outfit sounds like mine only it's in the 90s here so I've moved onto shorts. I'm loving ladies of london and I've been totally sucked into OC again.

MakeMeUpMia said...

I am wishing for a nice pair of non see through white jeans too.... And I get ridiculously excited to sit down and watch RHOC and Ladies of London each week ;)

Stacy G said...

Those centerpieces are gorg! I can't even believe that bachelor party situation. That is wayyy too much to ask. Esp people with families. I can't watch Real housewives of NY. It just never held my attention. I do like the OC, Beverly Hills and New Jersey. I don't think I'll watch Jersey housewives without Jacqueline though. XO

BLovedBoston said...

Oh I love this!! The centerpieces are amazing and my favorite flowers too!! I'm with you on eating Popsicles - I ate way too many yesterday haha!

Sarah said...

OH I love this post! I still don't get why people our age still want to go to Vegas for their bachelor/bahcelorette parties...aren't we too old for that? Rather, hang overs just really suck at this age and I don't bounce back as fast!

Kayla MKOY said...

I'm sorry NINE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS?!??!?! That is insane. People are getting just a little ridiculous...whatever happened to good old fashion simple nights?!

Those centerpieces are so unique!

Allison said...

A bachelor party for that much money is just plain crazy! Wow. And summer+popsicles=awesome!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

love this post and reading what's on your mind! That bachelor part? ummm no! haha And those centerpieces? umm yes!

Always Maylee said...

That is definitely a lot for a bachelor party! And seriously.. who needs sleep right? I totally agree about how much babies grow and learn. It's so amazing to watch. Right now Hannah is loving sucking on her entire hand. Every once in awhile she catches her hand with her eyes and just stares at it like it's a fun new toy, it's hilarious to watch.

Allison @ Texas Mrs. said...

I watch wayyyyy too much Real Housewives of OC... but I love it! And the drama. haha

Rach @ This Italian Family said...
